Notes on Ferguson

Two notes on Ferguson, one statistical and one comedic. Andrew Sullivan offers statistics on numbers of civilians killed by police officers in other western industrialized nations on The Daily Dish (USA--409, Japan--0, Great Britain--0, Germany--8). Various reports suggest that the number for the US may be low.

Jon Stewart brilliantly skewers Fox News for blaming the Ferguson rioting on Obama, Holder and Sharpton on The Daily Show (h/t Talking Points Memo).
